She is absent from Melrose Community Group Facebook discussions this time around. She must have realized that her pit bull tactics did her harm. Now she surrounds herself with yes women and sycophants only. She is still the same person though. She is just taking it underground this time. She knows it all.
Someone noted in a different thread that she doesn't mention leading the Failed Override attempt in her campaign materials.
If she is so proud of the valiant effort she made, she should mention it. She said she believed in it which only lasted until this next election where she is distancing herself from it.
Jen's campaign manager is Women's Commissioner and Melrose Democratic Chair, Sam Hammar who got her tactics from Emerge. Enough said!
My problem with McAndrew is that her personality is the opposite of what an elected official is supposed to do which is listen to the constituents. All politicians do this but she is the worst.
Those who fear for their political survival should be finding a way to jump ship and line up with the voices of truth before the inevitable happens.
I think it was BOA hopeful, Manisha who did the EMERGE program not OVERRIDE/SC Jen. Sam Hammar is campaign leader for her 1st priority gal, Manisha Bewtra but is pushing hard for McAndrews, too.
It's pretty simple. These people exemplify political correctness run amok. If you want to turn Melrose into a little Cambridge, vote for them. If you want Melrose to keep it's unique character, vote for someone else. If I wanted to live in Cambridge, I'd move to Cambridge.
My memory from the override campaign is that she presented herself to the general public as a concerned parent and resident. However, it is my understanding that she had worked in Katherine Clark's office. I feel her loyalty was not to to the residents of the city.
My memory from the override campaign is that she lied her a$$ off.
Come on! Be nice. I feel bad for her. Gotta be hard to breathe with your head up the Mayor's butt. [:-|]
She hopes to follow Katherine Clark's path.
Change is not happening in Melrose.
